Luis Balaguer, Vergara’s manager and business partner told Forbes magazine that they have implemented an effective strategy rooted in appealing to viewers of the show that gained Vergara such notoriety. "Our attention is on the people watching Modern Family and how to appeal to them outside of the show, too,” he said. "Our endorsement department is a well-oiled machine."
Vergara earned an approximate 73% more than the second-ranked actress on Forbes's list, Kaley Cuoco. Cuoco is slated to have grossed $24.5 million, 95% of which is attributed to her role on The Big Bang Theory.
